The 18-year-old child of Elon Musk reportedly filed months ago to change their name in an ongoing effort to sever ties with Tesla’s CEO.
The teen, who was given the name Xavier Musk at birth, has legally requested that their nickname be changed to Vivian Jenna Wilson, according to TMZ. The name Wilson is the maiden name of the teen’s mother, Justine Musk.
The documents were reportedly filed in April, shortly after their 18th birthday. An alleged screenshot has been taken circulating on Twitter†
The paperwork lists the reason for the name change as “gender identity and the fact that I no longer live with or wish to be related to my biological father in any way, shape or form.”
The hearing will take place on Friday, TMZ reports.
The 50-year-old SpaceX founder, who has not yet commented on the application, shares his child and her twin brother Griffin with ex-wife Justine.
The former couple are also parents to triplets Kai, Saxon and Damian, 16.
The investor also has two children with ex-girlfriend Grimes — son X AE A-XII, 2, and daughter Exa Dark Sideræl, 6 months.
Elon has remained relatively private about his children’s lives over the years and has never publicly described his relationship with his oldest child.
However, the Boring Company founder tweeted that pronouns were an “aesthetic nightmare” in December 2020.
Six months earlier, the native of South Africa told his Twitter followers that “pronouns suck.”
Elon’s ex-wife tweeted about one of their children on Monday, providing a rare insight into their upbringing.
“‘I had a weird childhood,’ my 18-year-old told me,” wrote the Canadian author, 49. “I can’t believe I look as normal as I am.” I said, ‘I’m very proud of you.’”
Justine noted that her child was equally “proud” of herself.
